January 6, 1941. Franklin Delano Roosevelt. "We look forward to a world founded upon four essential human freedoms....Freedom of speech and expression... Freedom of every person to worship God in his own way...Freedom from want...Freedom from fear, which, translated into world terms, means a world-wide reduction of armaments to such a point and in such a thorough fashion that no nation will be in a position to commit an act of physical aggression against any neighbor."
